Finance & Creditors’ Rights

Representing commercial lenders in all aspects of lending, our finance attorneys, mediators, and litigators are prepared to assist from the start of a loan through a collection process and even in bankruptcy matters.

What We Do

Barley Snyder’s Finance & Creditors’ Rights Practice Group represents lenders in all aspects of lending, including both the documentation of loans and their enforcement.

In representing commercial lenders in making loans to borrowers, our experienced finance attorneys assist loan officers in structure, negotiation, documentation and due diligence review of loans. We regularly represent lenders in interest-rate swap transactions and various other complex loan transactions, such as:

  • Real estate construction loans
  • Municipal and other bond transactions
  • New markets tax credit
  • Low income housing tax credit
  • Historic rehabilitation tax credit

For a more robust list of the tasks we can perform for your business, click here.

Our attorneys represent lenders in commercial and industrial (C&I) lending and other asset-based loans, including credit with unique collateral such as stock/ membership interests, liquor licenses, titled equipment and vehicles, intangible assets and equipment leasing and financing. 

When specific loan assets become non-performing or otherwise troubled, our team has experience in dealing with creditors’ rights. For a more detailed list of the ways we’ve assisted creditors, click here

We also regularly represent lenders in Small Business Administration and other government-guaranteed loans, syndicated loans and loan participations. Our diverse practice groups allow our finance attorneys to collaborate with other attorneys at Barley Snyder on issues such as environmental contamination of real estate, estate and trust issues, intellectual property, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights and title insurance.
